What we offer

The breadth of opportunities and amount of support make our post-military program unique. We take the time to get to know you, understand your skills and where you’d like to go in your career before placing you in a role. In September, we offer insight evenings to help you learn more about the firm, understand the opportunities available and discover how you can make a meaningful contribution across our organization.

We hire veterans of all backgrounds, ranks and experiences for roles across the firm, including project management, risk, compliance, finance, sales and trading, operations, technology and business management.

You’ll make an impact on our business from the beginning by helping us solve real business challenges and taking responsibility for projects from beginning to end. Applying the skills gained during your military career, you’ll help us innovate for our clients.

Program experience

Depending on your area of expertise, you’ll work on real-life projects that introduce you to the firm and prepare you for your next position. Besides gaining real experience working in one of our businesses, we offer many opportunities to build your network across the firm with speaker series, lunch and learn sessions, and other training opportunities. You’ll build your business skills alongside your global network as you search for a full-time position.

We’ll assign you a buddy who’s been through the program to help you navigate the firm and transition to our company as well as a mentor to help guide your career and make the most of the opportunities available. You’ll work one-on-one with your manager and your mentor to create clear goals and you’ll follow up to make sure you’re achieving them.

This paid, non-rotational program begins in February and lasts for six months in Bournemouth and three months in London with the option to extend if desired. Veterans are eligible to participate during their resettlement leave, making this an excellent way to discover more about a career in financial services.

Training and Development

We provide formal training opportunities, on-the-job skills development and sessions on softer skills to make sure you’re prepared to take on the next role at the firm. Participants have access to a wide range of online learning tools as well as in-person sessions led by senior leaders and industry experts to improve technical, financial and other skills.

Future opportunity

The majority of our program participants move into full-time roles based on their skills and career aspirations.

What you'll do

Your day-to-day varies with the job. You’ll work with your manager and mentor to outline clear goals, accomplish projects and acquire new skills that you can showcase as you look for a full-time role. You’ll network with leaders across the organization and determine where your skills will be best applied.

You’ll also work to help us uphold our core values of integrity, determination and leadership across the organization. We’re looking for those who can help us maintain our commitment to diversity, innovation and service.

What we expect

We’re looking for our next group of leaders who are focused on results, work well under pressure and can adapt to new environments. You should be capable, have integrity and a client-focused mentality. We’re looking for those with sound judgement, discipline, motivation and who are self-starters who learn quickly.

Key skills

We’re looking for those with excellent problem-solving and communication skills, who collaborate and work well with a team. You should be comfortable talking to anyone in the organization and flexible enough to take on new assignments and learn new terminology.
